The date of former International Boxing Organisation (IBO) and South African featherweight champion Lusanda ‘Mexican’ Komanisi’s next fight has been moved by almost a week.
Initially, the 32-year-old Komanisi was scheduled to face Kabelo Bikitsha in a World Boxing Association (WBA) Pan-African lightweight title fight at the Orient Theatre on Sunday, 12 December. The fight has since been postponed to Saturday, 18 December, at the same venue.
The date change came after Tewo Promotions paid 10 percent of the purses to Boxing South Africa (BSA) a day late. Then acting BSA director of operations Mncedisi Ngqumba advised Tewo Promotions boss Happy Tewo to move the tournament to another date.
